Which characters from the other Mission: Impossible movies can we expect back for Dead Reckoning Part One?
Aside from Tom Cruise, who will once again be playing main franchise protagonist Ethan Hunt, his core team of Luther and Benji (Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg) will also be in tow. Rebecca Ferguson’s Ilsa, who’s been positioned as sort of the British version of Ethan over the last couple movies, will also show up. And Vanessa Kirby, who stole the show in Fallout as the alluring arms dealer Alanna Mitsopolis, will return as well.
But maybe even more notable is the return of Henry Czerny (pictured), who played IMF director Eugene Kittridge in the first movie all the way back in 1996. We know he hasn’t been running IMF in the decades since, otherwise we’d probably have run into him again. So where’s he been and what’s he been up to?
Those are all the returning folks we know about right now. But just as Kirby’s character was new in the last film but was actually the daughter of Max from the first Mission: Impossible movie, we should at least expect further connections to the past.
As for new cast members who may or may not have said connections to Ethan Hunt’s past in some way, we’ve got Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Carey Elwes, Indira Varma, Shea Whigham and even comedian Rob Delaney, among others.
While we shouldn’t presume to know who’s actually good and who’s actually bad until we watch the movie, Esai Morales is supposedly playing the main villain.
